Indulge in spicy Sichuan fare at Han Dynasty. Serving the Upper West side, this casual restaurant offers an eclectic menu that runs the gamut. It includes appetizers, soups, noodles, rice, salads and a range of entrees. Popular menu items include the dan dan noodles, the spicy crispy cucumber and the string beans with minced pork. It also offers a special tasting menu that can be adapted to parties of eight or more.
Han Dynasty's laid back vibe makes it a good place for group outings or a fun lunch with friends. It is also a cozy watering hole. The restaurant serves an extensive selection of draft beers, wines, mocktails and cocktails to complement its fiery dishes. Han Dynasty is open all through the week.
Love this place. It is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in the city! The food is great, the drinks are so delicious, the service is really good, and it is affordable. We always order two drinks, one appetizer and one entree and that is usually sufficient for the two of us. I would eat there everyday if I could.
I was the only vegetarian in our party. I had spicy cucumber, dan dan noodles without minced pork and ordered pressed tofu in garlic bean sauce. Tofu was very chewy, the dish was dry with no gravy and there was only tofu without any oyher vegetables. The other members liked their chicken options. Despite being rated highly i will not visit this chain again. Very disappointed with vegetarian options.
I love Chinese food, so I had been wanting to try Han Dynasty for some time and it did not disappoint! The double cooked chicken and the dry fry beef are the best. A great spot for sharing food with friends!
My girlfriend and I went to Han Dynasty for a late dinner and it was great as always. The Dan-Dan noodles were an awesome starter and I really liked the black bean beef. We went pretty late, around 9pm, and it was the perfect atmosphere - not too loud or crowded, and our food came very quickly.
I have eaten at Han Dynasty before this location in U. City opened... I decided to eat here more out of convenience but I regret it! The service is ok, the food quality is poor and the management does not care if they lose a few customers because they have countless others. I have eaten in and ordered to go but neither has changed the poor quality of the food which is frustrating considering how delicious the menu options were when they opened.
Dan Dan Noodles. i could eat a whole bowl by myself.
I went with 3 foreign friends, two were from China. We shared 5 or 6 different dishes and everyone was very pleased. Nice atmosphere, friendly helpful staff - there was nothing not to like! Tai hao le!
This may be best Chinese I have had in….my lifetime. It was fantastic. I read reviews online and it exceeded expectations in every way. I went quite early for dinner because I was joined by friends with kids (who are silly well-behaved and foodies in the making) - and staff were incredible welcoming and accommodating. I wish I had brought more people because once you have a party of 8, you can have the tasting menu. Next time I will invite strangers to sit with me. Not to miss: spicy cucumber pickles, dan dan noodles (no really), pea leaves, double cooked style pork belly, garlic eggplant. If I had to make any suggestions for resto: use jumbo sized shrimp for salt-n-pepper shrimp, and more options for desserts would be grand.
This is a delicious chinese restaurant. The food is spicy but the waiter helped my 3 kids, ages 7 & 5, find food they loved that was not spicy.
Awesome as always......miss Han in person though!!
Compared to the old city location this location is more customer service geared. The only thing I did not like is that the Dan Dan noodles tasted like they had peanut butter in them...the other location made theirs more like a lo mein soup. But all in all, wonderful exPerience!!!!
I wish I had gotten my own order of the fantastic Dan Dan noodles instead of sharing one!
Pork belly with peppers also excellent. Can't wait to return.
I always think that the sign of a great Chinese restaurant is when it is full of Asian people and this place is.
I love coming here. This is the second Birthday I've celebrated at Han Dynasty and it's always amazing.
Dan Dan Noodles were excellent. The braised duck, however, was quite dry and disappointing.
